Central European University

The conference will be organized at Central European University (CEU), located in the heart of Budapest, within steps of the Basilica, the Hungarian Parliament and the Danube, is a premier destination for conferences and events. CEU offers a large Auditorium, several break-out rooms, a rooftop terrace and venues for receptions.

CEU's buildings at Nador utca 13 and 15 opened in fall 2016 with the highest standards in both design and environmental sustainability. Here you can find a modern and welcoming environment, open and interconnected spaces interspersed with private rooms, all equipped with the latest audiovisual and streaming technology.

CEU’s new campus buildings rank among the best in the world, since they were shortlisted for one of the world’s most prestigious architecture awards, the Royal Institute of British Architects’ RIBA International Prize. CEU’s buildings are among just 4 finalists for the award. RIBA praised CEU’s buildings for “having architectural éclat but great modesty.”

"This is an exceptionally fine urban campus with few compromises providing a wonderful stage for the university and the city. The building has become the architectural platform for the preservation of the values that the university espouses - transparency, community, higher education and democracy. Spaces like the auditorium have assumed a public symbolic role in the fight for the University’s preservation,”
RIBA writes on its website announcing the shortlist for 2018’s International Prize.
